This is a term used by the Iridologist to indicate a lack of circulation to the arms and legs. The legs and feet are the farthest away from the heart. Thus the blood must be returned from the legs against the force of gravity. This is why circulatory problems usually manifest first in the feet and legs. Vitamins helpful are A, B, B1, C, D, G and Niacin. Minerals include Magnesium, Phosphorus, Silicon, Fluorine, Iodine, Iron, Manganese and Sulfur. Herbs include Capsicum, Butchers Broom and Hawthorn Berries. Cold water leg baths and grass and sand walking as taught by Fr. Sebastian Kneipp are very helpful as is exercise in general. Capsicum can also be rubbed on the hands and legs to be absorbed through the skin and a bath can be taken as well with Capsicum.
Arcus Sinilis (Brain Anemia-White Cap)
Virtually all life activities of the body are directed by the Brain, and Dr. Bernard Jensen has found anemia of the Brain to be the most serious result of impaired circulation, low blood count, inadequate nutrients in the blood or any combination of these factors. The joy of life seems to diminish to a sluggish trickle, while thinking slows, memory dulls and a curtain drops over many activities and abilities which were formerly taken for granted. This condition, commonly associated with senility and old age, has less to do with chronological age than it does with our way of life. If a low blood count is suspected, Dr. Jensen advises obtaining confirmation through a lab analysis. You can build up the blood with iron-rich foods such as green vegetables, beets, black cherries, black raspberries, liquid chlorophyll and other supplements. Moving to a higher altitude can help. To improve circulation Dr. Jensen recommends slanting board exercises, early morning barefoot walks in dewy grass or on a sandy beach, Kneipp baths, alternate hot and cold foot baths and physical exercises appropriate to the persons age. Physical exercise stimulates increased adrenaline secretion which in turn stimulates faster, deeper respirations, faster heart action and greater oxygenation of body tissues
Cerebral Anemia means there is a lack of adequate blood supply to the brain areas for one reason or another. Dietary modifications, exercise, herbs, vitamins, minerals, food supplements and use of a slanting board on a regular basis are very helpful in these cases. Herbs such as Gotu Kola, Capsicum and Ginseng are also very helpful. The vitamin necessary is Niacin. I have provided information on the Slanting Board for you at the end of the analysis.
Assimilation Ring (Over Acid Stomach), Assimilation Ring (Under Acid Stomach)
Assimilation is how well you absorb the food you eat. It is not what you eat that counts, it's what you assimilate that your body can use that makes the difference. We absorb mainly in the small intestine, through the small villi which compose the intestinal walls. The absorptive function of these villi may be hampered by certain diets. Some persons may also have an inherent weakness in this area which does not allow them to utilize their foods as well as others. A proper diet is the best way to aid in assimilation. Also adequate rest is needed as a fatigued system cannot absorb well. Herbs such as Alfalfa, Peppermint, Papaya and Ginger are also beneficial. Should the villi become unable to absorb nutrients properly, cleansing may be encouraged using the herb Comfrey and the digestive aid Pepsin as well as a bulk former such as Psyllium Hulls along with Cascara Sagrada.
Body Acidity (Over Acid Body Chemistry)
Acids may come from the diet, from the state of mind of the person or from under functioning elimination systems. Often all three are involved to some extent. Thoughts can drive the body to an over acid condition faster than the worst diet. This places a strain on the organs whose job it is to eliminate these acids. Therefore, under functioning organs compound the problem. The way to overcome the over acid condition is to take care of the under functioning organs, make the necessary changes in the diet and alter the thinking. Organic sodium foods and high potassium foods are a help in alkalinizing the system. The best way to alkalinize the system is to eat only alkaline foods for a period of time such as fruits and vegetables and to avoid proteins and starches which are acidic foods.
Medically these are called "Diverticula". We refer to them as "Pockets" because it more accurately depicts what they are, an out pouching of the colon wall associated with an inherent weakness in the colon and perhaps also with increased colon gas developed by improper dietary habits (improper food combining). Bowel pockets can usually cause no problems if kept clean. Bowel pockets frequently can be the spawning-ground for localized sub-clinical infections. When colon debris are allowed to accumulate in them and putrefy, these pockets can become infected and inflamed. If this occurs it is called "Diverticulitis". This is a serious condition. Even when not acutely infected, there is frequently a "low-grade" infection present producing an irritation of the nerves in the colon wall. It is not uncommon for bowel pockets to be responsible for more enervation and conditions of ill-health than is generally recognized. It is best to take care of them by keeping them clean, first using the Colema Board then following up with proper diet, consistent use of intestinal bulk formers such as Psyllium Hulls and adequate intake of Acidophilus bacteria.
Chlorophyll containing products also can be a great help with this. Avoiding granola, individual nuts unless ground into a butter and popcorn. This is very important as these foods can become trapped in the pockets and can cause pain. Adequate intake of pure water as previously explained in the Kidney area is vital to proper colon health. Many conditions in the body are associated with the neglect of these bowel pockets. Moderate to severe contamination of these pockets is common and the best way to get them cleaned up quickly is with the Colema Board.
Gravity is one of the most difficult forces to overcome, because of our continual exposure to it. As a result, we have to exert a great deal of preventive care to reduce the development of Spinal problems, Brain Anemia or Prolapses of the Transverse Colon. Man is a creature who walks erect. His internal organs are held in place by connective tissue and membranes which generally resist the downward pull of gravity upon those organs, but the combination of enervation and gravity, sometimes together with inherent weakness or chemical depletion, can cause the dropping of the Transverse Colon. Prolapses of the Transverse Colon is one of the most commonly encountered effects of gravity, and its consequent pressure effects upon the organs of the pelvic region can cause serious problems if not properly counteracted. Among women, the first thing we find is pressure on the Ovaries, Uterus and the blood vessels of the pelvic region. Cysts on the Ovaries may form which do not drain adequately for healing to take place. This is probably responsible for many of the surgeries performed on women these days. Blockage of one or both Fallopian Tubes may occur, hindering or preventing passage of the ovum and contributing to irregular menstrual cycles. Blockage of both Fallopian Tubes would, of course, result in sterility. Prolapses of the Transverse Colon among men is frequently accompanied by Prostate trouble due to visceral pressure. In general, the pressure due to Prolapses can cause distortions, contractions and irritation to the Sigmoid Colon which interfere with bowel elimination. If there is enough pressure on the pelvic organs, we may find urinary disturbances and pain in the lower abdomen. Interference with the blood supply to this area may lead to adhesions, bowel distortions, ballooned conditions in the bowel wall, strictures and Diverticula due to restrictions of the passage of wastes and consequent buildup of gas. One of the most troublesome problems in the abdominal areas is that of Hemorrhoids caused by rectal pressure. The veins are forced out of the rectal area because of pressure at the stool. Use of a slanting board, regular exercise, controlling weight, use of herbs, vitamins and foods mentioned earlier in the bowel area are all beneficial to the Transverse Colon.
